The Mooncatcher's Rescue: eBook (Reflowable ePub)

By Karen Lamb

Illustrated by Lia Visirin

A quirky, tender and imaginative adventure about searching for lost treasure and finding friendship along the way, perfect for fans of The Shark Caller and The House with Chicken Legs.

Treasure isn’t always where you expect to find it… River likes to go mooncatching, sweeping his net across the reflection of the night sky in the village pond. But when he accidentally wakes the ghost of Mona Brightly, whose bones rest beneath the water, River must find Mona’s lost treasure before the ghost of the dastardly pirate Dashbuckle gets there first. This is classic children's storytelling at its best – with lively characters and a whole lot of heart. Beautifully illustrated in black and white by new talent Lia Visirin.
